Looking for fun stuff to do during Spring Break? Visit the Denver Art Museum March 20–April 4 to explore art and get inspired!

Youth 18 and under receive free general admission every day and admission will be free to all visitors from March 27-April 2, as part of our Free Days at the DAM program. Tickets for the free week will be made available at 9 am on Monday, March 15. Reserve yours.


If you're not able to visit in person or if you want to supplement your visit, check out Creativity Resource for online artmaking, videos, and fun activities for kids and families while school is on break.

At the museum

The fun starts on level 1

Use Art Check In to prompt family conversations and have fun throughout the museum. Aim the camera on your phone to the QR code on signage when you arrive. Once you have the activity on your phone, choose wherever you want to go in the galleries and use the prompts to engage with the art.

Take the Art Letter Challenge. Pick up a card with a prompt to think about as you explore the galleries. As you exit the museum, be sure to pick up a pre-paid envelope stuffed with artmaking supplies at the cart near the Studio. Design your own creation on the card and send it to whomever you choose!

Visit new exhibitions on level 2

There are two new exhibitions on view on level 2 of the Hamilton Building that have new games for kids and families.

We need your help in the 19th Century in European and American Art exhibition. A friendly dog named Rip leaped from his painting and got lost among the artworks. Piece together clues—marked with a paw print—to follow his trail and ensure he is back where he belongs.

In Paris to Hollywood: The Fashion and Influence of Véronique and Gregory Peck (opens March 14) you can play the family game called Véronique’s Closet. Explore unique garments worn by fashion influencer Véronique Peck. Discover what makes them so special—from surprising materials to creative design.
